    Somehow I coincidentally started reading this during a random s2 rewatch? And it's shiveringly perfect, the back and forth, the up and down, the painful vulnerability of two extremely locked-in people trying to make their way toward each other in unbelievable circumstances. (Bonus: a placemat biography of Kierkegaard. No I am not kidding.)

    *****

    But now, on this hot day on an alien planet, Rodney was magically transported back to the age of fifteen, feeling the exhilaration of youth, the nearly forgotten sensation of having a body that did exactly what you told it to do. The nostalgia was fed by the sight of Sheppard sailing the length of the field, the ball obeying the subtle commands of his feet, gray shirt dark with sweat and hair made even more schizophrenic by wind and soccer balls and activity. He was wild and beautiful and dazzlingly alive and if Rodney were a praying man he would pray that John stay like this forever, suspended in this perfect summer afternoon that flowed around them like liquid amber.

    *****

    To say John played it close to the vest was like saying the Chicago fire was a small blaze. He was a puzzle of vast and elegant proportions, and normally this was exactly the sort of thing Rodney loved to turn this way and that, to approach logically, to gradually pick apart until it yielded up its secrets.

    He understood stress: he’d defended theses, he’d dealt with jealous, backstabbing colleagues, he’d saved the galaxy on more than one occasion. He knew that all the crises, all the death, all the burdens John had shouldered over the past year were starting to drag him under. He could pick John apart if he wanted to, categorize him and define him and in the final analysis summarize him neatly and succinctly.

    But there would be nothing left of John when he was done. And Rodney wanted him around for a long, long time.

    Funny and touching and fabulous little vignettes for Season 2. Makes me want to watch the episodes all over again so I can match the action to the story.
